Barkley would usually play more along the line of Grealish's role than Hourihane's, but they could well try to play him as an orthodox centre-mid.
We're decent enough..

I would think this will be another potential problem for Hourihane. Barkley has done very well playing centrally for Everton in the past and a lot of Chelsea fans are disappointed to see him go out for the season. I’d imagine Conor will be under more pressure than the other Villa midfielders. Hopefully he’ll rise to the challenge

Cant be good for Hourihane. Cant seem to start two games in a row as it is and seems to get subbed a lot... 

I feel barkley will limit his time on the pitch further this season.

definitely don’t think it will be good for him initially. But Barkley blows hot and cold and Villa still don’t have a massive squad!

Tbf that’s basically how I’d use Hourihane. I find against the top 6/8 teams where Villa are chasing the game Hourihane gets completely run over doesn’t have the legs. I wouldn’t have him in the squad against the likes of Liverpool. 

Against the bottom 8/10 teams where Villa a tidy side they tend to get on the ball Hourihane is a huge asset. He should nearly be one of the first names on the team sheet in those games for his set piece delivery and ability on the ball. Villa essentially wouldn’t have stayed up last year without his contribution against bottom 10 teams.

Just checked the score after reading your comment. Wow. Not many would have predicted that scorelines. I see Villa have now used their three subs so Hourihane won't be an injury risk at least.

To be fair. I think smith was probably doing him a favour not throwing him on .

I'm not doubting your stats, Kevin - Hourihane did his bit in the relegation fight but to say he was their saviour is a stretch. I reckon he has no future at Villa. The Barkley loan will severely impact his game time this season and there's no way he's in their plans beyond it. He's a skilful player but apart from dead-ball situations his impact is minimal and he's always dragged. I would say he was usually the last name on the team sheet. Very useful Championship player with the right club.

Unfortunately this is true. Nobody doubts his deadball ability more often than not, but over the course of a 90-minute game he just doesn't do enough.

Yes he might get you an assist or a goal, but what are you sacrificing by having him in your midfield? For someone who appears so comfortable on the ball, he really doesn't seek out or demand the ball as much as he should.

he goes missing too often during games especially against better teams.
 
We need midfielders who get themselves about the park.

Been sat on the villa bench for the last 4 games in a row, doesn't look like he's going to leave it anytime soon... doesn't bode well.

Villa are a much better side with their mid. 

He did well for Villa last season but he is a very limited player. 

Not a PL level.
